    I hope Iyanla can help Mike Brown’s family, she has a gift to help get closure and heal. I think this is a good thing.

    This is good. The Brown family needs good spiritual and grieving counseling. The majority of the citizens of Ferguson and in that community need to be educated about life skills, registered voting drives and showing up at the polls and vote, job training, conduct, they need a lot of help. Ferguson also need to clean house starting with the mayor, police chief, city council and police officers. Ferguson needs diversity and unity. It’s divided and looks like “us against them”, a very ugly picture. Ferguson reminds me of a plantation, people are trapped, it’s very sad. Sadly sometimes it takes tragedy to turn into triumph. I hope Ferguson turns around in a positive way after all of this/it’s struggles.
